(which is covering up the SU! Tangelo Twist that I originally put on there), Fossilized Amber, Cracked Pistachio (covering the original Twisted Citron-hey covering up the ink worked once, right?), and Mermaid Lagoon. I'm thinking it would be fun to do some masking and inking right on the stamp combined with some masking and inking on the card stock too. Might be a tad harder to line up, but wonky plaid is still plaid, right? :)
No? Just me then? Oh, okay. :) This is the perfect example. How could I forget this great technique? It is so much fun and really cool looking too. I didn't really choose the best background stamp to show off the tech, but I like it, it makes me happy and it is above all else PURPLE. Sorry, there was just a smidge of "so there" in that comment. Apologies. But it is purple. And awesome. Heh. Well, SU! Blackberry Bliss to be exact. :) This was only my second attempt I know, amazing, right?!? using a text stamp from Wendy Vecchi and a cover-a-card stamp from Impression Obsession. And I like it. Again with the "so there" tone. Sorry! Heh. The first try is interesting...same background text but the top stamp is the logs cover-a-card and instead of the text appearing in the back of the logs, it looks like they are in front. Probably couldn't do it again if I tried. Well, maybe, I think it is that the logs don't cover enough of the text. But I like it anyway. Yay! A two for two liking! And I may be back a little later with the plaid stamping- I have a stripy background that will either be super cool or super, well, not cool. Will let you know...here is the logs and text sample.

This is the VersaMark on inked background. I used SU! inks and as you can see the stamping turns darker, just like VersaMark on CS. Pretty, but I think I have to snag me some of the inks that Jennifer used, those were amazing. Don't know where I will put them, but let's worry about THAT later. If you want to find out about it, head over and register for the class- it is TOTALLY worth it (they didn't pay me to say that or anything, I just really love these classes)! Just don't ask me how many times I took the picture of the background. LOTS. And it is still a little off. But it is less blurry. Really. Look, just trust me on this one, okay? Perhaps I need to take a using-the-stupid-camera class... thanks for stopping by, happy stamping! :)
